giving encouraging news. the other was viacom and disney. harolding what picked up in the economy. but news corp. is the one with the most promising results because i made it all possible. good night. ♪ >> bob: hello, i'm bob beckel with andrea tantaros, eric bolling, dana perino, and greg gutfeld. it's 5:00 in new york city. this is "the five." ♪ ♪ >> bob: big story tonight, the santorum sweep. rick santorum winning in three states yesterday. colorado, minnesota, missouri. it looks like his strategy i is comparing romney to obama. >> they have the contracts to make barack obama the issue in the race and not our candidate who is in respects the big
5:01 pm
issues of the day, just where obama is. >> bob: i have been around presidential politics for 30 years. it woke this morning and when i heard this, this shocked me. i got to tell you, i was just taken aback. >> greg: then you walked home. >> bob: then i went home. i saw you on the way. andrea, who is hurt more here? mitt romney or gingrich? >> andrea: they both get hurt. because look, they were fighting over the conservative vote. santorum and gingrich. but i think it hurts romney more. because now he has to fight a three-headed monster. gingrich isn't going to get out of this. it will be santorum, gingrich and it will be president obama and the democrats that are already taking shots. the republican primary i think will look like david and goliath, where romney has the organization, he has the money but he is fighting david with the momentum. this is a vote against mitt romney. this was more against mitt romney. conservatives are not settled with him. the slingshot in the analogy is going to be newt gingrich.
5:02 pm
>> bob: there you go. interesting thought. you heard santorum what he said last night. what do you think about the message? >> dana: it's working. and surprising some people it's working because they had written -- they had not paid much attention to him now. wow, there are four people left and rick santorum is one of them. if you haven't decided yet, in fact, one of the people that works here stephanie took a quiz online because he is said she is independent, he is didn't know who he is wants to vote for. takes the quiz and she was surprised because it ended up that santorum was the person he is most identified with. i think that something we haven't talked a lot about in this campaign at all up to now is he is doing that is working for him, he is talking about obamacare a lot. it still remains the most unpopular piece of legislation and he is not afraid to take it on. even president obama is not talking about obamacare. santorum made it an issue. that is how i think he -- >> bob: and tough for romney to take it on. from the right field, righty,
5:03 pm
do you think the right will coalesce around santorum now? >> eric: i don't know. do this. i just got off the phone to rick santorum, spoke to him. i said are you going to ask newt gingrich to drop out the way he did after he beat you? he said no, i don't play that way. i am not going there. i said are you anti-romney? he said eric, i'm the anti-barack obama. that is a smart way to go. can i throw a conspiracy theory out here? >> bob: please. >> eric: i saw the weigh-in this morning and listened to the talking heads say my gosh, obama screwed up here. this is a great opening for conservatives and the right. it dawned on me -- >> bob: screwed up on what? >> eric: good point. going after the obamacare, making sure that catholics -- catholic employers provide sterilization. it dawned on me what if they were trying to derail the big romney train that won florida handily andness handily. how are you going to break up this train?
5:04 pm
how are we going to break the right up? they did. >> andrea: they want a fight. >> eric: right side -- >> andrea: they want this fight. i think they miscalculated this issue, but they, if the democrats could talk about social issues from now, gays, gods and guns until november, they want this. >> bob: somebody on the grassy knoll in dallas, too. it's not a crazy theory but it's hard for me to imagine you make it all fit. maybe, who knows? let me ask you this. this is an important question. pulse of the nation. greg -- wait, let me ask the question. are you now interested at all in presidential politics? >> greg: did we make a bet on this? that's what he was going to ask me if i care. you never read any of my stories, i actually read the stories. look, i don't want to count newt out. any of his ex-wives will tell you he is great on the rebound. even though santorum won three states, three states, are these really states? like when you go to the fair,
5:05 pm
you want to win the giant stuffed bear. he won three big combs. three. i want to make a point. talk about romney because everybody says romney is hurt. i feel bad for mitt romney. did you ever see the brady bunch episode where marcia is asked to the prom by the quarterback and breaks her nose and he dumps her because he doesn't want to take her to the prom because he is has a broken nose. who steps? charlie, her best friend and takes her to prom. he was there for her. mitt romney is charlie. the quarterback is obama. marcia is america. >> bob: greg, where all that -- your mind, where it goes, and how this stuff comes out is -- >> dana: i think most americans understood that. >> bob: i'm sure they did. >> greg: romney is sitting here watching everybody pick the other guy. he is going to be -- >> bob: now i get it. >> andrea: i like the carnival analogy.
5:06 pm
you can win all the small toys like santorum, even though romney has the big bear and the other goldfish toss, and all the other stadiums, people will be scared of rick santorum because he is winning little bears. >> bob: look at what santorum says. can we have the shot of what santorum said about mitt and newt, ice cream one? >> running against barack obama better than anybody else in the race right now. won in three primary contests and consolidating the conservative and tea party vote. people are tired of the negative back and forth between engler and romney -- between gingrich and romney and looking for systemone to do it against barack obama on the issue. >> bob: dana, who is that for a message? >> dana: the message is fine. fine to good. but the tone is excellent. he'he is not negative.
5:07 pm
the fundraising numbers for him that the campaign put out decent as you might expect in january. mira adams had a good point today. it comes down to five to seven states. who wins those is the one that matter. florida, north carolina, virginia, ohio, indiana, and nevada, with a 12.6 unemployment rate that romney just won. >> eric: the turn-out. >> bob: i got to try to -- no, please. go ahead. >> eric: i was going to say the turn-out was low. the concern for romney camp has to be he did substantially worse than he did four years ago. that has to be relevant. >> bob: what strikes me, you are right about this. but romney loses in colorado, where he put a lot of resources. they didn't put resources in minnesota, didn't put them in missouri. why, by way he didn't put them in missouri, half a million dollars of tv would have won that state. but leaving that aside, he has no argument about colorado.
5:08 pm
right? so you are right. it's got to say that romney has got a real substantive problem with the conservative base of the republican party. if you had no evidence of it before, it has to be now, right? >> dana: do you think -- there is also -- he is running for two races. they're not -- they're sequential, not consecutive. he is running them consecutive. i mean by that, he is running a general election campaign a long time he was praised for because she was taking on obama and not getting in the middle of the little fights but he hasn't sealed the deal for the nomination yet so it gets harder and harder to run a consecutive race when you should have -- that is what i predict. shakeup or a new hire on the romney campaign. >> andrea: the message is wrong, though, too. we looked at the santorum message calling him obama-lite. that makes sense when there are conservative skepticism there. but romney's message now out of the losses is rick santorum is an insider. >> eric: yes. >> andrea: it's not
5:09 pm
believable because he is not acting like an insider. anyone who has distaste for what is happening for washington doesn't seem like an insider. people peg romney as the insider. >> bob: that is exactly right. one thing, landscape of presidential politics is littered with front runners who decide to run a general election campaign too early. they inevitably get tripped up. >> greg: romney is assuming he is going all way and he hasn't bought any of the steak dinners. >> bob: right. did you ever win the softball toss of the milk cans? >> greg: never. it's all a hoax. doesn't work. >> bob: it's all rigged. that's what i thought. >> greg: you were the dunking clown, weren't you? >> bob: i was. >> eric: who started the show today? >> dana: bob. "a" block. >> eric: "a" block. >> bob: i'm going to -- >> andrea: no whining now, bob. >> bob: no whining. up next, that was painful, how will the obamacare mandate on contraception play in the 2012 election?

5:15 pm
absolutely. i think that this is an issue that plays with all religions, look and say you know what? this administration is not sensitive to one's religious beliefs. why don't they just do a carve-out and let the religious institutions decide if they want to offer contraceptives or not. i know people are saying most catholics, they don't buy what the catholic church is saying. okay. let the leaders of the catholic church decide that. if you feel strongly about wanting and needing birth control, buy it on your own. >> eric: we just got this over the wire. i guess meeting with president obama. >> dana: retreat. >> eric: at a retreat. quoting obama -- quoting lautenburg who said, affirmed his views and sticking by what he said and said we should be careful to explain that an exception was knead for those that has religious objections. otherwise, contraception has to be supplied. sticking to the story. >> greg: what i love about this. the left continually cries

poor can't afford the pills. that translates to stop the poor from reproducing because we hate the poor. it's class wa warfare. if they find something to rhyme with negative eugene ticks, the -- eugenics the left would cheer. i have a tortureed metaphor. a better one. the conservatives have to be wary of playing with this issue too much. i go to the supermarket to get milk. i come home with eight things are that are inevitable. mill sack the economy. we have to focus on the economy. not be distractioned by serious issues but issues that aren't going to get somebody new in the white house. >> dana: the economy is the republican mother's milk of the campaign. >> bob: that was brilliant. >> dana: poetic. i know. >> bob: it was. >> dana: but some democrats
5:17 pm
like governor kaine who is running for senator in virginia has come out against this, and senator manchin and lieberman as well. when you have that support drift away, and then you have the ground swell of support behind it, the archbishops aren't long when they read the law. the general councils aren't wrong. the spin from the white house has been less than appetizing to a lot of people. the religious freedom act was sponsored by ted kennedy and signed by president clinton. >> eric: take a listen to some of the liberal friends. here is how they see it. >> of course, it's not good for the democrats to go head-to-head against any church so we don't intend to do that. the caucus supports the president. i do. >> the republicans and house of representatives have been waging a war against women's health since the moment they came to power.
5:18 pm
>> this whole thing about the preventive amendment, is all about birth control is so exaggerated, so overblown, so out of contest with what we want to do, i'm just shocked. >> i've got a -- >> eric: let me ask you a question. >> bob: you read that and say he affirmed, what did he affirm? >> dana: the exemption. they're saying that the exemption they provided is enough. the reading of it to most people who know the law says it's not true. too narrow. not broad enough. if it was broad enough i think that archbishop dolan who didn't want to have this fight with president obama, they could have worked something else. just like when president obama promised him everything would be okay and it turns out it's certainly not. the language about the war on women is offensive. especially to those of us --
5:19 pm
you can support contraceptive but this is insult on religion. >> andrea: they tried to get the budget passed, they said it's war on women. pelosi has already come out to say he is believes birth control is stimulative because it's population control. the broader issue, bigger issue is liberals' intolerance of things. they believe it's better for government to decide what you should have. >> bob: can i say something? >> eric: yeah. >> bob: thank you. do we have a poll among catholic voters on this issue? among catholics now, asking whether they support president obama on this, 53-45. in favor of president obama. i wonder where the 70 million ground swell is we talked about yesterday. how much of this -- i understand the concerns from the churches a i understand what they are saying, but is this a voting issue? >> dana: absolutely.
5:20 pm
>> eric: find out. if this issue, if obama doesn't address it quickly -- >> dana: it's not about contraceptive. it's about the principles. >> bob: this says should catholic institution provide contraceptive health coverage. >> dana: it's provide and forcing them to. if they don't, make them pay a fine. notre dame cover 439 employees and if they didn't the fine is $10 million. >> andrea: catholic charities, 70,000 employees, fine is $140 million. >> bob: this should say should institutions who are fined millions if they don't provide contraceptive norm >> eric: be required to. >> dana: can we have a poll? we all have the poll -- >> eric: i have to go but
